Talybont Garden

A warmish night in early October and a couple of the species in and around the trap are a rare second generation in these parts; Yellow-tail and Light Emerald seldom appear round here this late in the year.
Spruce Carpet, Silver Y. Garden Carpet, Black Rustic, Canary Shouldered Thorn, Yellow-line Quaker, Red,line Quaker, Common Marbled carpet Large Yellow Underwing and Setaceous Hebrew Character were the other macros plus one carpet moth refusing to open it's wings but I would take bets on another Spruce Carpet! Two micros only, Epiphyas postvittana and Eudonia angustea.
Not a bad haul bearing in mind the garden is in the process of being re-planted...scared off all my micros! The pond has had the same treatment so hopefully next year more China-marks and less Iris Sawfly!
